Bingo, Bravo, Right On!

To WN for his incredible commitment and effort to such a humanitarian and extremely difficult and frustrating cause.

To BC for his sincere praise for WN and his efforts and sympathy for those afflicted.

There is a You Tube site titled " Soft White Underbelly" that delves into the world of drug addiction, homelessness, mental illness and every other form of human character affliction and disfunction.

It's a stark look into the tragic side of America.

The documentarian's interviews of these people are mesmerizing. He gives these people a chance to tell their stories. Without judgment or condescension.

It's often easy to judge homeless or drug addicted people negatively.
Many of them really are bad character people. Dangerous and preying on their own. Selfishly taking and never giving back. 

But that is just one part of this issue.

Most homeless are not dangerous victimizing thugs. Yes, some are.

But in my lifetime experience I think that 75 to 80% are not. Hundreds of thousands of homeless live out of a car. You don't see them on the street.

No one can afford these rents here in California.

It will take a huge budget and commitment "war effort" to seriously bring this situation to anything close to eliminating it. I don't think the entire societal will to do this is there though.

There are many, many reasons America is seeing millions of homeless. IMO there are two reasons specific to California where I live that stand out.  I am reluctant to express these because some will label them as socialist or racist.

The rents here in California are criminally high imo. A very small percentage of people in California own most of the residential rental property. There is a gold rush going on here where this small group is making gold strikes because they make so much money in astronomical rental fees.

For the common good ( the majority of Californians are renters and with one primary property owners a huge majority) we need legislative reform that would make it so difficult to own more than your own single residential property and at the same time make it easier for renters to buy a home. Even with government down payment assistance.

This proposal would be fought against by the wealthy rental property owners like it was WW II all over again and the enemy is the millions of people who have been held down for decades and are being stressed to breaking points regards rent being higher than their entire take home pay incomes. And any legislative representative promoting their one home seeking cause.

Another reason is unchecked illegal immigration.

Tens of millions of illegals pouring into our country and especially California.

I understand their life and death desire for a better life here than Mexico and the other Central American countries.

Yet, these new millions all need housing. They keep the supply and demand for housing so one-sided in favor of the rental property owners that there just isn't enough housing to offer to not just the homeless, but the entire huge and growing population of low income residents.

They pay the high rents even if it means 10 to 12 live in one rental house or apartment.

So, we build another two million new housing units ( not $500,000 dollar cost ones ) then what?

With unchecked immigration and millions still flooding in...the demand for rental housing will never abate. They'll need millions more.

Population control is probably going to have to be seriously considered and confronted to end the ever growing demand problem...imo anyways.

 

I agree, and I would add it’s no wonder that many of the poorest people who bear the brunt of this severe economic inequality are mentally distressed and diagnosed as mentally ill.

 Herschel Walker faces new violence claim

Former president to rally for Raphael Warnock against Trump-backed Republican as early voting closes in Senate runoff

 

Herschel Walker speaks at a campaign rally in Dalton, Georgia, on Wednesday.

 
 
 
Martin Pengelly in New York
 
The guy "admits" to being treated for multiple personality disorder?
And it sounds like the guy was either bedding his harem women or grabbing them by the neck or holding a gun to their heads. I am going to blow your head off woman!
 
Whew! What a winner!
 
Will Georgians be the first to elect and send to our Senate a fake police badge wearing, multiple abortion demanding, multiple personality disorder diagnosed, domestic violence perpetrator whose main residence isn't even in Georgia?
 
But in Texas? 
 
If so...I think I am going to stop buying peach pies from Georgia and I will re-watch the Georgia backwoods film "Deliverance" to try to understand why.
 
WHY?
 
Or should I say..."WHEEE, WHEEE?"
 
Democratic party VP candidate Thomas Eagleton was instantly dropped by George McGovern in the 1972 presidential election because it came out that he had shock treatments in his past.
 
Maybe Walker's thousands of violent head banging collisions on the football field had a similar effect and should be considered with similar concern?

John,

     If people take the time to talk to some of these homeless people who sleep under bridges in the U.S., they will learn that many of them are hearing voices and experiencing paranoid delusions.  Their paranoia often makes it difficult for them to trust anyone, and most have also experienced a lifetime of abandonment, rejection, and even violence from social contacts.  Sad but true.

Maybe it's wrong to generalise about such matters, but which do you think came first for these people, William, the "slings and arrows of outrageous fortune" or the mental problems?

John,

     In cases of paranoid schizophrenia, as you probably know, the age of onset is usually late teens or early 20s, but there are some psychotic disorders with earlier ages of onset.   Childhood trauma, understandably, worsens the course of any life, as does later life trauma.

"We have very strong security, especially with the extremely talented Secret Service Agents on premises, but when I know someone, as I did Ye, we’re not going to have my guests strip searched, thrown against walls, and otherwise physically beaten. The anonymous sources don’t exist. Stories to the contrary are FAKE NEWS!"

 

That's a relief. I really wasn't looking forward to getting strip searched and pysically beaten.
